For the time being Regan Smith is a race car driver without race team, but he’s not a man without a country.
Smith, who drove for the now defunct Tommy Baldwin Racing in 2016, doesn’t yet have any concrete plans for next season,
But Smith is keeping himself busy. During his four seasons with Furniture Row Racing, the native of Cato, New York, lived in Denver, Colorado, where the premier series team is located.
Those four years saw Smith pledge allegiance to Bronco Nation. Now, with the Broncos on a road swing on the eastern part of the United States, Smith is using his free time to follow his favorite team with friends.
Smith attended Denver’s game last weekend in Jacksonville, Florida, where they beat the Jaguars 20-10. Today, Smith is in Nashville, Tennessee, where the Broncos play the Titans.
It’s no secret that Jimmie Johnson is off to a slow start in 2017.
The defending and seven-time NASCAR Cup champion has a starting average of 21.8 and a finishing average of 18.8 in the first five races of this season.
He has just one top-10 finish (ninth at Phoenix), along with 34th at Daytona, 19th at Atlanta, 11th at Las Vegas and 21st Sunday at Fontana.
And let’s not forget he’s 17th in the NASCAR Cup standings heading to one of his strongest tracks, Martinsville Speedway, this Sunday.
On Monday’s edition of NASCAR America, we discussed this: After such a slow start to the season, is there a cause for concern over Johnson’s performance?
On Monday’s edition of NASCAR America, NASCAR Hall of Famer Mark Martin shared his experience of racing in his home state of Arkansas, as well as the excitement he feels watching Kyle Larson compete in the Cup series.
Kyle Larson‘s spectacular weekend at Auto Club Speedway — winning both Saturday’s Xfinity Series race and Sunday’s Auto Club 400 NASCAR Cup event — left him feeling good.
But shortly upon exiting the facility, Larson and several others were involved in a fender-bender right outside the Speedway. Larson was a passenger, not the driver.
No one was injured, Larson tweeted.
But somehow, isn’t that strange fate?
Kyle Larson finally broke his streak of three straight runner-up finishes with his win in Sunday’s Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway.
On Monday’s edition of NASCAR America, the crew discussed his win as well as his maturation as a driver.
